The Hot Springs of Bath, rising at a natural tem- 
perature of 120°, rich in radium emanation, have 
never been in greater demand nor more appreciated 
than they are to-day. Wounded soldiers and 
invalided civilians alike are finding renewed health 
and strength in the Bath treatment. 
The waters are administered at the extensive Bathing 
Establishment by every means that science can devise 
for the balneotherapeutic treatment of disease. 
Rheumatism and Neuritis and " Nerve Shock " are 
but a few of the complaints successfully treated here. 
Bright, cheerful, restful surroundings and good 
music help the invalid to regain health, and provide 
for the pleasure and entertainment of those who come 
to Bath only for a rest and change. 
The Roman Baths of Bath, still standing in wonder- 
ful preservation, are amongst the finest Roman 
antiquities in Europe. No place in Britain is richer 
in beautiful buildings and historic houses of the 
XVIII century. 

To many visitors the architectural beauty and his- 
torical associations of the city appeal very strongly, 
while others are attracted by the delightful walks 
and excursions all around. 

There are first-class concerts at the Pump Room 
every day, frequent special performances, and good 
companies at the Theatres. 

"For 2000 Years" 

is the title of a recently published booklet giving 
particulars about the Hot Springs of Bath, which will 
be sent post free, together with Hotel and Apartment 
List and other information, on application to —

HE forthcoming Session will be the eighth of the present 
Parliament, which has now been in existence 
for a longer period than any of its twenty- jf**?* 1 
nine predecessors since the date of the Union. mr Im " 
Having met for the first time on January 31st, 
191 1, it has sat for upwards of seven years, and during that period 
considerably more than a quarter of the Representation of the whole 
House has been changed. The alterations in personnel 
will be found in full detail under * CHANGES SINCE GENERAL 
Election, Dec. 1910," on pages vii to xxviii. These show JJ 
that during the present Parliament the unusual number of 
220 Bye-Elections have taken place, resulting in the return of 180 new 
Members. 101 Members have resigned their Seats, or vacated same 
by reason either of appointment to Offices of profit under the Crown 
or on elevation to or succession to Peerages. 79 Members have died, 
29 have been raised to the Peerage, 76 have 'been sworn of the Privy 
Council, 47 have been added to the Roll of Baronets, 58 have received 
the honour of Knighthood, 1 the Order of Merit, 2 have been nominated 
Companions of Honour and 38 Companions of the Orders of Knighthood* 
1 Member was disqualified, being subsequently re-elected, and there 
have been 1 1 successions to Peerages and 4 to Baronetcies, while at the 
time of going to press there are not any seats vacant. 

It is curious to note that although the present Parliament was rtself 
elected under the provisions of the Septennial Act of 1716, and by the 
Parliament Act of 191 1 reduced its life and that of subse- 
quent Parliaments to five years, nevertheless by the irony _ 
of fate it has on more than one occasion extended that 
period until it has now lasted even longer than would have been the 
case under the old regime, if it had come to an end merely by effluxion 
of time. 

The next General Klection, it is more than probable, will be held 
00 the New Register under the extended Franchise enacted by the 
Representation of the People Act, passed on the last day ^ 
of the last Session (February 6th, 1918), which provides for A * ° rm 
the enfranchisement of women over 30 years of age, and 
for the taking of votes of persons in Naval and Military employment, 
thus adding some 8,000,000 voters (2,000,000 men and 6,000,000 women) 
to the Register, which in future is to be revised half-yearly. 

A list of the Constituencies showing the Redistribution 
of Seats under the new Act is given in alphabetical order bu ' fi ^* " f 
on pages 506 to 510, and shows that the number of Members a#a|g 
of Parliament for the United Kingdom will in future be 
707 in place of 670 as heretofore, their distribution among Counties, 

vi Preface, 

Boroughs, and Universities being set out under " Constitution of the 
House of Commons " on p. 1, while the essential provisions of the 
measure are indicated among " Explanations of Technical Parliamentary

Extract from Truth, October 3rd, 1917. 

" In order to answer a recent enquiry from the front, 
I obtained particulars of some ingenious devices for miti- 
gating minor discomforts of camp life on active service, 
especially those of cold and wet weather ; for example 
a practical weather-proof tent that can be folded into 
a parcel small enough to go into an overcoat pocket ; 
a waterproof groundsheet weighing less than i lb., and 
a capital sleeping bag which weighs no more than 
ij lb. These are among many useful articles supplied 
by the Lightweight Tent Co., 6i, High Holborn, 
London, W.C.i, and I think my Service readers may be 
glad to know of them."

Duties of some of the Higher Officers of 8tate. 

tute 6 Ann*, c. 41, the holder of an office of 

frofit accepted from the Crown or the Lord- 
.leuienant <>f Ireland, 
a teat in Parliament, if the office be created 
since 1705. The acceptor of any office 
:ed before that year must vacate his 
■ad submit himself to re-election : l»ut 
by the Representation of the People Act, 
1867, and some Amending Acts, holders 
of the principal offices of State are re- 
lieved from the obligation to submit them- 
selves to re-election, upon a transfer from 
one office to another ; the Law Offio 
on transfer do not vacate. The legislation 
on the subject is tangled and obscure, but 
the result, broadly speaking, is that holders 
of the higher political offices vacate their 
on appointment, except in <. 
•t-r. but may be re elected ; that holders 
of minor political offices, who are 1 
pointed directly by the Crown, e.g. Under- 
of State, do not vacate their 
on appointment ; and that Judges, and 
members of the permanent Civil Service are 
alined for a seat in Parliament. Holders 
of the following Offices in the Ministry vacate 
their seats on appointment, seeking re- 
election : • — The Prrst I .<>rd of the Tr-

copy. t)uKtission of the 
may be held on any of its »t* fc 
committee and on the stage of coeatderath 



reading. After being read a second time 
the bill, except in the case of a bill im- 
posing taxes, or a consolidated fund or 
appropriation bill, stands committed to one 
of the four Standing Committees, unless the 
House otherwise order. Bills so excepted 
go to a committee of the whole House. 
When the details of the bill have been 
considered in Committee, and the bill has 
been debated clause by clause, the chair- 
man of the committee reports it to the 
House. This he does by stating to the 
Speaker that " the committee has gone 
through the bill," and has either "made 
amendments thereunto " or " directed him 
to report the same without amendment." 
If no amendment has been made, the bill 
is ordered to be read a third time either 
forthwith or on a future day ; but if the 
committee have altered it the bill is ordered 
to be considered as amended. If the amend- 
ments are considerable, it is customary to 
reprint the bill. On the consideration of a 
bill as amended, amendments may be made 
or new clauses (of which notice has been 
given) may be added, such as could have 
been proposed in Committee. A bill may 
also be committed to a Select Committee 
after second reading, but must in that case, 
after it has passed the Select Committee, be 
recommitted to a Committee of the whole 
House On the third reading the judgment 
of the House is expressed upon the entire 
bill, and only verbal amendments can at thi.^ 
stage be made. During the progress of the 
bill the House may divide on the following 
questions : ist, on the motion for leave of 
introduction (unless the Bill is presented 
under the 1002 rule) ; 2nd, on the second 
reading ; 3rd, on a motion to commit the 
bill to a Committee other than a Standing 
Committee, that the bill be recommitted ; 
4th, that it be read a third time. These are 
exclusive of the divisions that may be taken 
on amendments proposed to be made to the 
bill in committee, or on its consideration 
as amended. After the passing of a bill, 
the Clerk of the House takes it to the bar 
of the House of Lords, and hands it to the 
Clerk of Parliaments, signed and endorsed 
in Norman French, with a request for con- 
currence. In the Upper House it passes 
through similar forms to those of the Com- 
mons. If the Lords agree with the Com- 
mons in the principle of a measure, but differ 
on matters of detail, the bill is returned to 
the Commons, bearing the amendments the 
Lords propose : these are considered by the 
Lower House, and if disagreed to, the bill 
is returned back to the Lords with a mes- 
sage assigning reasons for the disagreement. 
A Public Bill, other than a Money Bill, as 
defined by the Parliament Act, 191 1 (see 
Money Bill), having been passed by the House 
of Commons in three successive sessions, and 
having been sent up to the House of Lords 
one month before the end of the session, if 
rejected by the House of Lords in each of 
those sessions, can then be presented direct to 
His Majesty for the Royal Assent, provided 
that two years have elapsed between the date 
of second reading in the first session of the Bill 
in the House of Commons, and the date at 
which it passes there in the third session. A 
Bill is considered rejected by the House of 
Lords unless it is passed by that chamber, 
either without amendment or only with 
' amendments agreed to by both Houses. 
Differences between the Houses were for- 

merly settled by a conference, but this 
practice has now become obsolete. Acts of 
amnesty are read only once in each House. 
Bills that have passed both Houses remain 
with the Lords, except those of supply, 
which are sent back to the Commons, to be 
by the Speaker presented at the bar of the 
Lords for the Royal assent. 

Board of Agriculture and 

FISHERIES, Thi: President ok. Is head 
of the Government Department controlling 
matters dealing with lands, animals, rivers, 
and the sea, as well as the Ordnance Survey. 
This department, founded in 1889 as to 
agriculture, was extended to cover fisheries 
in 1903. 

Board of Education, President 

of. Has control of this Government De- 
partment of Education for England and 
Wales, and supervises the distribution of 
the Government grants towards elementary, 
secondary, technical. University, and all 
other forms of public education ; the de- 
partment has a large inspection and exami- 
1 nation staff. 

' Board of Trade, The. Considers all 

matters especially relating to trade and 
commercial relations. It consists of a Presi- 
dent and several high officers of State, 
though it is practically managed by a Presi- 
dent and Parliamentary Secretary. It has 
the general superintendence of all matters 
relating to merchant ships and seamen, and 
exercises a supervision over railways, har- 
bours, electric lighting, the administration 
of the Law of Bankruptcy, the registration 
of Joint Stock Companies, etc., while it also 
exercises financial control over the principal 
lighthouse authorities. It collects and pub- 
lishes statistics of the revenue, trade, com- 
merce, wealth, population, etc. , of the United 
Kingdom and its dependencies, as well as of 
foreign countries. 

Bribery. Both the giver and the 

receiver of a bribe can be put into the wit- 
ness-box and be compelled to answer any 
questions, however they might criminate 
themselves. The giver must say to whom 
he gave, and what he gave, and where he 
procured the cash. The receiver must say 
what he received, and from whom he received 
it. Any person who gives or receives a bribe 
is disfranchised for life, and his name is to be 
printed at the foot of every succeeding re- 
gister of voters for that place in a distinct 
list, headed " disqualified for bribery, treat- 
ing, or undue influence." A candidate 
personally guilty of bribery is incompetent 
to sit in a Parliament for seven years. He is 
liable to a penalty of 100/. to any person 
who will sue lor it. He is liable to an in- 
dictment for misdemeanour, and to be pun- 
ished with fine and imprisonment. He is 
incompetent to vote at any Parliamentary 
or municipal election ; he cannot hold any 
municipal or judicial office ; and, if a magis- 
trate, is to be removed from the commission 
of the peace. The offences of "bribery," 
"treating," and "undue and corrupt in- 
fluence" are defined by statute law, especially 
by the Corrupt, etc. , Practices Prevention Act. 
1883. The maximum scale of expenditure 
during an election now is in the case of a 
County "jd. for each elector on the Register, 
and sd. in the case of a Borough (with modifi- 
cation for joint candidates). Expenditure 
above this scale is an illegal practice, punish- 



able by fine, and by electoral and parliamen- 
tary disability. Payments by candidates for 
conveyance of voters is prohibited. Penalties 
for corrupt practices are increased ; and the 
intervention of the Public Prosecutor at elec- 
tion trials is prescribed. 

Budgf.t, Tiik. Is ihe financial state- 
ment laid annually by the Chancellor of the 
Exchequerbefore Parliament of the estimated 
public income and expenditure of the follow- 
ing or current financial year. In it he 
mentions what taxes it is proposed to re- 
peal, to reduce, or augment, and what new 
ones are to be imposed. In his speech 
on this occasion the Chancellor reviews the 
financial condition of the country, comparing 
the income and expenditure of the previous 
year with those of preceding years, justifying 
the changes that are proposed to be made, 
and estimating their probable effects.

Clerk of thk House 01 Commons. 

Is appointed by letters patent : performs the 
office of president during the election of the 
Speaker ; sits at the upper end of the table, 
with two assistants ". is responsible for the 
record of the proceedings of the House ; signs 
all its orders, endorses bills sent to the House 
of Lords, ami reads aloud such documents as 
the House may require. The appointment of 
the Clerks in the service of the House, other 
than Clerks at the table, is vested in this officer. 

Clerk of the Parliaments occu- 

Eies an analogous position in the House of 
,ords to the Clerk of the House of Commons. 

Closure of the Debate can, by 

Standing Order, be obtained upon the motion 
of any Member, unless the Speaker or the 
Chairman of Committees withholds hisassent. 

Colonies, Secretary of State for 

the. Has under his control matters con- 
nected with the government of our extensive 
colonial possessions. 
COMMITTALS. The House of Commons 
has the power to repress any aggression com- 
mitted upon its privileges, and it can order 
into custody any person so offending. Such 
imprisonment, however, expires at the end of 
the session. 

Committee of Public Accounts, 

The. Examines the accounts showing the 
appropriation of sums granted annually by 
Parliament to meet the public expenditure. 
It consists of not less than eleven members 
(the more usual number being fifteen), who 
are nominated at the commencement of 
each session. 

Committee on Public Petitions, 

Th e. Reports throughout the session a classi- 
fied list of the petitions presented to the 
House, and scrutinises them for the purpose 
of seeing whether or not they are in order. 

I '< immittees, Standing. There are 

four of these, consisting of not less than 60 
nor more than 80 members, appointed by 
the House of Commons pursuant to Stand- 
ing Order, to which all bills stand com- 
mitted after second reading, unless the 
House otherwise order, except Bills im- 
posing taxes, or consolidated fund or ap- 
propriation or provisional order Bills. 

Committees. Those of the whole 

House are generally for the purpose of con- 
sidering resolutions, or the details of a bill, 
or for financial purposes, such as those for 
"Supply" or "Ways and Means." Select 
Committees are for specific purposes, and the 
numbers composing them, as a rule, consist 
of fifteen members. Presence of strangers is 
generally permitted by Commons Committees 
while witnesses are under examination, but 
not while the Committee deliberates. Mem- 
bers are entitled to be present throughout 
Committee sittings, unless the House other- 
wise order, or unless it be a Secret Com- 
mittee. The consideration of private bills is 
referred to Committees consisting of four 
members. Under Standing Order, Select 
Committees can sit during the sitting of 
the House, except while the House is at 
prayers. When the whole House goes into 
Committee, the Speaker vacates the chair, 
the mace is placed under the table, and 
the Chairman of Ways and Means, or in 
his absence the Deputy Chairman or another 
member, is called on to preside. 

Conference, a. b the meeting of a 

delegated number of Peers and of members 
of the Commons' House to communicate a 
written message upon matters in which it is 
desirable that the two Houses should co- 
operate. At a " free conference " the subject 
of the written message may be taken into 
debate. Conferences are not now often 
resorted to, having been practically super- 
seded by informal negotiations between lead- 
ing members of the two Houses. 

Controverted Elections. The trial 

of election petitions is regulated by a sta- 
tute which transfers the entire jurisdiction 
to the Courts of Law. A petition complain- 
ing of an undue election must be presented 
within 21 days after the return of the writ, 
unless it questions the return on an allegation 
of corrupt practices, etc.. in which case it 
may be presented at any time within 28 days 
atter the day of payment. Thus the practice 
of promising at the election and paying after 
the time had elapsed for the presentation of a 
petition is met by permission being given to 
petition between 28 days after the payment 
of the bribe, whensoever made. At the time 
of presentation of a petition, or within three 
days after, security for ^1,000 is to be given 
by those who present it for payment of all 
costs, charges, and expenses that may become 
payable by the petition. 
Count-out. If a member takes notice 

of the number present, the Speaker counts 
the House, and if forty members be not pre- 
sent, the Speaker adjourns the House without 
question put, till next sitting-day. Under 
the existing Standing Orders of the House 
cannot be counted out between 8.15 and 
9.15 o'clock p.m. [See No House.] 

Courts of Revision. [See Registra- 
tion of Voters and Revising Barrister.] 

Demise of the Crown. Since the 

Reform Act of 1867 the Demise of the 
Crown does not necessitate a Dissolution, 
but if at the time of the Sovereign's death 
Parliament happens to be adjourned or 
prorogued it must meet immediately. If, 
however, there is no Parliament in existence 
at the moment, the old Parliament again 
meets, and may serve for six months. Since 
1901 the holding of any office under the 
Crown, whether within or without the 
Hritish Dominions, is not affected by 
the Demise of the Crown. 

Deputy Chairman, The. Presides 

in the absence of the Chairman of Ways 
and Means, when the House is in Com- 
mittee, and may act as temporary Deputy 
Speaker in the absence of both the Speaker 
and the Chairman of Ways and Means. 

Deputy Speaker. [See Chairman

conscientious objectors (during the War and 
for five years after) with certain exceptions ;

be assembled until after a general election. 

-ion, A. Is the mode of taking 

the votes of each House of Parliament. In 
the Commons, if the opinion of the Speaker 
or Chairman as to (he decision of a question 
is challenged, he directs that the lobbies be 
cleared. After two minutes he puts the 
question again, and, if his opinion is still 
challenged, he nominates tellers, and directs 
the "ayes" and the "noes" to go into the 
right and left lobbies. Whilst meml • 1 
through the lobbies, clerks record the names 
of those present and the tellers count the 
numbers. The tellers then return to the 
e, and their report of the numbers is 
finally announced from the Chair.

turned by two constituencies must within

Civil Li*t pensions. This is the position 
usually, though not always, taken by the 
Prime Minister or the Leader of the House 
of Commons. 

Foreign Affairs, Secretary of

the interests of the British Empire and 
British subjects in foreign countries. He 
negotiates all treaties, leagues, and alliances 
with foreign states, either directly with the 
Foreign Minister at this Court, or through 
the British Ambassador abroad ; and is the 
official organ and responsible adviser to the 
Crown in all communications between his 
Government and foreign powers. 
Franchise. In law, is defined as 

"a Royal privilege, or a branch of the 
Sovereign's prerogative subsisting in the 
hands of a subject." As applied to Parlia- 
ment the term means the right to vote at an 
election for a member of Parliament. Under 
the Representation of the People Act (1918) 
the franchise extends to all men of full age 
(not subject to legal incapacity), and having 
the requisite residential or business premises 
qualification (six months) ; women on attain- 
ing the age of thirty and being entitled to be 
registered as Local Government Electors or

employed on war service on attaining the 
age of nineteen {i.e. naval and military em-

Friday Sittings. The House meets 

every Friday (up to 1902 it used to be 
Wednesday) at twelve o'clock. Friday until 
Whitsuntide is set apart for the bills brought 
in by private members, and the House, unless 
previously adjourned, continues to sit until 
the business of the day is disposed of, or until 
5.30 p.m. (no opposed business being taken 
after five). On the disposal of business, or at 
5.30, the Speaker adjourns the House without 
putting any question, and the business under 
discussion, or undisposed of, stands among 
the orders of the day for the next sitting of 
the House. 

General Election. [See Election 

of Members.] 

Government Business. Unless the 

House otherwise direct, Government busi- 
ness has precedence at every sitting except 
after 8.15 p.m. on Tuesday and Wednesday 
and at the sitting on Friday; after 8.15 
p.m. on Tuesday and Wednesday notices of 
motion and public bills, other than Govern- 
ment bills, have precedence of Government 
business ; after Easter, Government business 
has precedence during the whole of the 
Tuesday sittings ; after Whitsuntide, Govern- 
ment business has precedence at all sittings, 

except on the third and fourth Fridays 
after Whit Sunday. 

Government Orders, are the bills 

brought in by the Government and other 
Government business appointed by the 
House, which are entitled to be placed 
at the head of the list at sittings when 
Government business has precedence. 

Hempholme. [See Chiltern Hun- 
Home Department, Secretary of 

State for. The duties and responsibilities 
of this high officer comprehend the main- 
tenance of the internal peace of the United 
Kingdom, the security of the laws, ami the 
general supervision of matters relating to the 
administration of criminal justice. 

House of Commons. According to 

the theory of the English constitution, the 
House of Commons represents the whole 
population, and it is unconstitutional to sup- 
pose that members are delegates of any 
special community. Each member is held 
to represent the interests of the nation. The 
proceedings of the Commons are regulated 
by standing orders, which are the per- 
manent bye-laws of the House, by sessional 
orders renewed annually, and by the custom 
of Parliament, as embodied in rules and regu- 
lations established by usage, or laid down in 
the journals. The following is an outline of 
parliamentary practice : — A motion for the 
grant of public money may not be presently 
entered upon, but must be put to the vote 
on a future day in a Committee of the whole 
House, having received the previous recom- 
mendation of the Crown. Notice, as a rule, 
must be given of every motion, and, except 
in committee, it must be seconded. There 
must never be more than one question before 
the House at the same time. However many 
amendments may be proposed upon amotion, 
each one is separately disposed of. If there 
be a majority for any words standing part of 
a question to be put to the House, then a vote 
is taken on the question with these words 
in it. In case of the rejection of every 
amendment, then the original proposal, what- 
ever it may be, motion or bill, is put to the 
vote, stripped of all the counter proposals 
which the debate has called forth. No mem- 
ber can thus be driven to vote for what he 
does not approve ; for after having voted in 
favor of such amendments as he may propose 
to the original question, he can vote against 
it in the end. No motion or bill may be 
offered upon which a judgment has been 
expressed during the current session ; a 
resolution may, however, be rescinded, or an 
order of the House discharged. A bill that 
has passed both Houses contains all the 
sentences and words composing the Act of 
Parliament to which the Royal Assent is 
given. When a member speaks, it must be 
to some question before the House, or to 
introduce a question. The mover of a 
substantive motion is permitted a reply, 
and those who have spoken to the original 
question may speak again when an amend- 
ment or a new question, such as the adjourn- 
ment of the debate has been proposed : 
but otherwise no one is entitled to more 
than one opportunity of speaking on a 
question, except when the House is in Com- 
mittee. No member may call another by his 
name ; if it is desired to call personal atten- 
tion to him, he must be referred to by his con- 



stituency, or by the office which he holds. 

member may interrupt another by 
" rising to order," />., calling the attention 
of the chair to the fact that a breach of order

be out of order for a member to refer to debates 
in the House of Lords of the current Session. 

ill is converted into law unless it ha-« 
(subject to the provisions of the Parliament 

rail) received the duly expressed ap- 

I of both Houses and has received the 
Royal Assent. Public bills for imposing taxes 
or charges begin with the Commons. Bills 
for restitution of honours and in blood (which 
are, however, very rare) begin in the Peers. 
A member who moves the adjournment of 
a debate is by courtesy entitled to speak 
rir>t when the debate is resumed. Hut this 
rule does not apply to the renewal of debate 
in a Committee of the whole House. For 
the sake of convenience, certain parties- 
ministerial, opposition, or otherwise— group 
themselves on benches which they appropriate 
to themselves. When several memlx-- 
to address the House, the Speaker or Chair- 
man signifies who shall have precedence ; this 
is known as " catching the Speaker's eye."

the benefit of Members serving on Com- 
mittees. [See Payment of Members.]

Sovereign to form a Ministry, the members 

of which he selects from those favourable to 

his policy, he himself being the Prime Minis- 

■•ig commonly, though not ..

on these occasions was designed l>y Augustus 

Welby Pugin, the eminent architect, who 
was employed in the designing, erection, 
and decoration of the Houses of Parliament ; 
it has been in the House of Lords since the 
completion of that Chamber, and was used 
by Queen Victoria when she opened or 
prorogued Parliament in person. The State 
Chair provided for the Queen Consort is an 
exact replica of the old, but an inch and a half 
lower. The frame is mahogany elaborately 
carved, but the wood is nowhere visible, being 
entirely covered with a rich gilding of 
English leaf-gold, the legs resting upon four 
lions couchant. The back is gabled and of 
lofty pitch, with moulded columns on each 
side, surmounted by a lion and a unicorn 
holding scrolls, while in the centre, higher 
still, is a representation of the Imperial 
Crown. In the middle of the back are the 
quarterings of the Royal Arms of England, 
embroidered with gold-coloured silk on 
crimson velvet, with a surrounding border 
studded with pieces of rock crystal. The 
cushion to the seat is also of crimson velvet 
richly embroidered with the white Tudor 
rose and leafage. There is also a gilded 
footstool to match, which is oblong in shape, 
the top being covered with velvet em- 
broidered in gold, the pattern being sprays 
of roses with a border of fleur-de-lis.

[See Estates of the Realm.] 

Parliament Act. The main pro- 
visions of the Parliament Act 191 1 (1 & 2 
George V. c 13) are : (1) If the Lords with- 
hold their assent to a money bill for more 
than one month after the bill has reached 
them, the bill may be presented for the 
King's assent, and, on that assent being 
given, will become law without the consent 
of the Lords. The Act gives a definition of 
a "money bill," and it is for the Speaker 
of the House of Commons to certify that a 
bill falls within the definition. Before giving 
his certificate he is to consult two Members 
of the House of Commons for that purpose. I 
(2) If a bill other than a money bill is passed 
by the Commons in three successive Sessions, 
whether of the same Parliament or not, it 
may, on a third rejection by the Lords, be 
presented for the King's assent, and, on that 
assent being given, will become law. But 
two years must elapse between the date of 
the second reading in the first of those 
Sessions and the date at which the bill 
parses the Commons a third time. Pro- 
vision is made against the identity of a bill 
being destroyed by the introduction of 
amendments made necessary by lapse of 
time or agreed to by both Houses. (3) Five 
years was substituted for seven years as the 
maximum duration of a Parliament. [This 
period has been specially extended on 
several occasions during the War. 

Parliamentary Agent. Is a pro- 
fessional gentleman who acts as Solicitor in

Petitions. Every subject has the right 

of petitioning the Sovereign, or either House 
of Parliament, for the redress of grievances. 
Petitions to Parliament must be drawn up 
according to prescribed rules ; those to the 
House of Lords must be addressed, To tin 
Right Honorable the Lords Spiritual and 
Temporal in Parliament Assembled : and 
those to the House of Commons must be 
directed, To the Honorable the Knights 
Citizens, and Burgesses of the I 'nited king- 
dom of Great Britain and Ireland in Parlia- 
ment Assembled ; or, To the Honorable the 
Commons of the United Kingdom in Parlia- 
ment Assembled. Electors commence their 
petition as, The Humble Petition 0/ the 

Electors 0/ the Parish 0/ , sheiveth 

that, etc., and a private individual must set 
forth his name and occupation thus. — The 
Humble Petition of'J'homas Charles Burd, 
coal merchant, sheiveth that, etc. Following 
this must be mentioned the grievance for 
which relief is desired, and the whole must 
conclude with a specific prayer, as, Where- 
fore your Petitioners humbly pray that your 
Honorable House tvill be pleased to, etc. 
Here must follow particulars of the special 
relief that is asked for, the concluding 
sentence being, And your petitioners, as 
in duty bound, will ever p7ay. If the 
prayer be omitted, the petition is returned 
to the Member who presented it, as the 
House will not attend to a mere statement 



of grievances. Immediately following the 
prayer must be written the signatures, one 
of which, at least, must be written on the 
same skin of parchment, or sheet of paper, as 
the petition. All signature, or marks must 
be original, procuration not being in any 
case allowed, except in cases of incapacity by 
sickness, for either a single individual or any 
body of persons, but the common seal of a 
corporation is acknowledged as a petition of 
the whole corporate body. Every petition 
must be written upon paper or parchment, 
be free from erasures or interlineation, and 
written in the English language, or accom- 
panied by a literal translation which the 
member presenting it certifies to be correct ; 
but no letters, affidavits, or other documents 
will be received. Only thosi signatures are 
reckoned as valid which are written on sheets 
headed in every case by the prayer of the 
petition : but on every sheet after the first 
the praxer may be reproduced in print, or by 
other mechanical process. Petitions are re- 
jected which contain intemperate language, 
or imputations upon the character or conduct 
of either House of Parliament, the Courts of 

ic, or other constituted authorities. 
Reference is not allowed to be made to any 
debates, or to matters therein referred to, 
but petitions may refer to motions of which 
due notice has been given : while petitions 
praying for a grant of public money, or 
ge upon the revenues of India, or for 
the remission of taxes or dues, are not 
i '■■.! except on the recommendation of 
the * ry member presenting a 

petition must affix his name at the beginning 
thereof, and is presumed to know that the 

• ting petitions have 
been complied with. No debate is allowed 
when petitions are laid upon the table, and 
they stand referred to the Committee on 
Public Petitions, without any question being 

but if the petition relate to a subject 
with respect to which the member present- 
given notice of a motion, and 
not been ordered to be

Prf.\ i mode 

of attempting to avoid a direct expression of 
opinion upon a motion. It is effected in 
the House of Lords by proposing, in lieu of 
the original motion, a motion "that the 
original question be now put." A I 
taken on this, and if negatived the original 
motion is practically rejected ; although the 
motion might be proposed again at a 
quent sitting. In the Commons the method of 
procedure is reversed, and the form adopted 
is " that that question be net mnv put."

;. The. Is the mem- 
ber returned at the head of the poll, not the 
member who has served the constituency the 
longest time. 

Serjeant-at-Arms, The. is an offi- 
cer appointed 1>\ patent under the Great Seal, 
attached to the House, who is styled "the 
Serjeant-at-Arms attending the Speaker of the 
House of Commons." He is assisted !>>•:■ 
deputy and several subordinates, and is also 
Housekeeper of the House of Commons. 
During the sitting of the House he occupies 
a chair below the bar, and to him is delegated 
the maintenance of order in the appi 
to the House and the adjoining offices. His 
duties are performed under the directions of 
the House, communicated to him by the 
Speaker. He apprehends and retains in 
custody all persons committed by order of 
the House. 

Session. The Session of Parliament 
continues from the time of its meeting until 
it is either prorogued or dissolved. The 
House of Commons limits to one year the 
duration of the Army Annual Act, and votes 
the supplies for the public service by grants 
limited to the current year. The Crown is 
therefore compelled to resort to an annual 
assemblage of Parliament, which usually 
takes place early in February. Six days at 
least, but generally thirty or forty clays, 
previous to the intended meeting, a procla- 
mation is issued by the Crown, commanding 
the attendance of both Houses for despatch 
of business, usually at Westminster, but it 
maybe at anyplace within the United King- 
dom. The business usually transacted at the 
commencement of every Session is to consider 
the Speech from the Throne. One Bill, how- 
ever, always receives a first reading, in order 
to assert the right of Parliament to protect 
the interests of the people before considering 
the subjects contained in the Royal Speech. 
No number or length of adjournments de- 
stroys the continuity of the Session. [See 
also Prorogation.] 

H inal Orders are agreed to at the 

commencement of each Session, and are not 
intended to continue beyond that period. 
SITTINGS. On Monday, Tuesday, 

Wednesday, and Thursday the House usually 
sits from 2.45 to 11 p.m.; or, for non 
contentious business until 11.30 p.m. There 
is. as a rule, no sitting on Saturday, and on 
Friday (when the House meets at 12) the 
adjournment takes place not later than 
5.30 o'clock.

Speaker of the Houseof Commons. 

Is the representative of its powers, authority, 
and dignity. His chief duties are to pre- 
side over the deliberations of the House, 
to put the question, and declare the deter- 



mination of the House. In the conduct of 
the debates, the Speaker calls on those mem- 
bers to address the House who, in his opinion, 
are entitled to precedence ; he promptly and 
decisively i ei effect 

to the rules and regulations of the House. 
When he rises to enforce a point of order, 
the House is immediately silent ; and his 
deciM il>le on prece- 

dent, is, as a rule, accepted without cavil. 
But >till the ultimate authority, upon all 
points, is the House itself. He also pr 
to the Sovereign addresses from the Com- 
mons ; reprimands persons who have incurred 
the displeasure of the House ; issues warrants 
of committal for breach of privilege ; com- 
municates with any parties, when s>, instructed 
by the House : exercises a general control 
over the business of the House, both public 
and private ; expresses the thanks or appro- 
bation of the Commons to distinguished per- 
„es; adjourns the House if forty members 
>t present, and appoints Tellers on 
division. Under the Standing Orders, the 
Speaker may withhold his assent to a motion 
for the closure of a debate ; he may, after 
continued irrelevance on the part of a mem- 
ber, direct him to discontinue his speech, 
or if a motion for adjournment be, in his 
opinion, an abuse of the forms of the 1 1 
the Speaker may forthwith put the question 
thereon. The Speaker may also direct a 
Member, whose conduct is grossly disorderly, 
to withdraw during the remainder of that 
day's sitting. He does not speak, except 
in his official capacity ; nor does he vote 
except to give a casting vote when the

even though accompanied by a member. 
The Members' Lobby is strictly reserved for

manent officials, secretaries of Ministers, and 
others, whose names are placed by the 
Speaker on a special list. Parliamentary 
agents are admitted to the Members' Lobby

than 20 days, being days before the 5th of 
August, are allotted for the consideration 
of the annual estimates for the Army, Navy, 
and Civil Services, including votes on ac- 
count. An additional 3 days either before 
or after 5th of August may be allotted for 
the business of Supply on motion made after 
notice by a Minister of the Crown. 

Suspension from the service of the 

House is a punishment imposed on members 
who have been named by the Speaker or the 
Chairman of Committees, for an infraction of 
the rules of the House of Commons. The 
effect of an amendment made in the Standing 
Orders in 1002 is that an Order of Suspen- 
sion made in pursuance of Standing Orders 
remains in force until the end of the Session, 
unless previously revoked. But suspension 
may be ordered otherwise than in pursuance 
of Standing Orders. 

SWEARING In. The administration of 
the oath or affirmation to the members of the 
House of Commons at the beginning of a 
new Parliament is conducted in the fol- 
lowing manner :— The oath is administered, 
in the first instance, to such Members, not 
exceeding five in number, as are of His 
Majesty's Most Honourable Privy Council 
and to Members who have held office under 
the Crown, and then to such Members as 
may present themselves, being five in number, 
for that purpose at the table. In no case is 
the oath administered to more than five 
Members at the same time, in order that the 
process of signing the roll and the introduc- 
tion of Members to the Speaker may be con- 
ducted-wit h due regularity. Members should 
refrain from presenting themselves at the 
table for the purpose of taking the oath until 
all the Members to whom the oath is being 
administered have left the table, so that 
Members may be able to take and subscribe 
the oath without delay or inconvenience. 
Members should not leave the table until 
they have signed the roll and have been 
introduced to Mr. Speaker. 

Teller. Is a member appointed by the 
Speaker when a division takes place, to count 
the number of members voting for or against 
a motion. Two are appointed for each side. 

'•That I do now Leave the Chair." 

Is the question put by the Speaker on the 
occasions when it is needful, before the whole 
House goes into Committee. 

"That the Orders of the Day be 

now Rkad." That the House proceed to 
the business of the day without further 
decision taking place on the motion then 
under discussion. 

"This Day Six (or Three) Months." 

The motion that a bill be read a second time 
upon this day six months, is the ordinary 
mode of moving its rejection. 

Time of Meeting. The House meets 

on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and 
Thursdays at a quarter to three o'clock, when 
the Chaplain reads prayers. The business 
of each sitting is conducted according to 
the following routine -.—When private busi- 
ness has been disposed of— i.e., usually 
about three o'clock— the putting of questions 

to members of the Government begins, and 
continues until 3-45, after which five minutes 
is allowed for questions of special public 
importance or relating to the arrangement 
of business. The real work of the day is 
then entered upon, and the regular business 
of the sitting is commenced, namely, the 
consideration of the orders or moti 
down for that day. The House continues 
business until half-past eleven o'clock unless 
previously adjourned, but only unopposed 
business is taken after eleven o clock, unless 
what is called the " eleven o'clock rule " 
is suspended. On Fridays the House meets 
at noon.

met Oct. 23rd, 1707. The Union of Great 
Britain and Ireland took place on January 
1st, 1801. 

Vacating Seats. By accepting an 

office of emolument from the Crown, a mem- 
ber at once vacates his seat. It is customary 
for a member who wishes to resign to 
apply for the sinecure Stewardship of His 
Majesty's Chiltern Hundreds, or of the 
Manor of Northstead (for seats thus vacated 
no re-election can take place during recess).

a new Parliament the original issue of writs 
lies with the Crown. Writs returnable for a 

county arc sent to the Sheriff of the county, 
and those that relate to cities or boroughs 
are sent direct to the Returning Officers. 
The messenger, or pursuivant, of the Great 
Seal, or his deputy, after receiving the writs, 
is bound to carry them forthwith to the 
C.eneral Post Office in London, and there 
deliver them to the Postmaster General or his 
depun i acknowledgment thereof 

in writing. The Postmaster-General, in his 
turn, is bound to despatch the writs by the 
first post ; the Returning Officers are re- 
quired, upon receiving them, to give an 
acknowledgment, setting forth the day and 
hour of delivery ; and this memorandum is 
transmitted to the General Post Office in 
London, and filed there for reference. The 
London writs are delivered personally by the 
nger of the Great Seal. 

Marcarkts QHUKCM, Westminster, is the church of the House of Commons, and 
Parliament are always entitled to seats therein. The tercentenary of its recognition 
took place on April 17th, 1914. 




At the time of the Union with Scotland, in 1707, the House consisted of 513 members ; 45 were then 
added for Scotland, and in 1801, 100 were added for Ireland, making the total of 658. This number 
was preserved by the Reform Acts of 1832 and 1868, but in each case the apportionment was altered, 
and in 1885 it nominally stood— England and Wales 493, Scotland 60, and Ireland 105, but by the 
disfranchisement of Beverley (2), Bridgwater (2), Cashel (1), and Sligo (1 ), the total 1 
was reduced to 652 members. The result of the Redistribution of Seats Act 1885 was to increase 
the total number of members elected for counties, boroughs ami universities to 670, and the 
Representation of the People Act (iqi8) raised the total to 707, the basis being on* Member for 
every 70,000 of population in (Ireat Britain, and one for every 43,000 in Ireland. Distribution is 
as follows : —

S comprehensive, practical, 

and easy of reference, and 

divided into three sections : 

1.— Chapters on general matters, 

and useful hints on the 

actual Depiction of Arms. 

2.— An Alphabetical List of 

Heraldic Terms, Phrases, 

etc., interspersed with 

copious illustrations and 


3.— A series of Plates of actual 

Coats -of- Arms used 

throughout the work as 

illustrative examples with 

efficient cross-references. 

Coats-of-Arrns or Heraldic devices are often features in 

design ; it is, therefore, with a desire to help the beginner 

and the amateur who— possibly artists— may wish to depict 

such devices that this volume is issued at a popular price. 

Possible Heraldic pitfalls are pointed out, and the steps 
to be taken to avoid them indicated clearly and concisely. 
Those interested in deciphering some Coat-of-Arms or 
Crest, or desirous of designing, drawing, and painting any 
Heraldic achievement for ornamental or decorative pur- 
poses, bookplates, stained glass, wood-carving, or other use, 
will find this book just what they want to help them to 
obtain practical results.
